Do kids in North Korea have this problem?

Lola was outside playing with her friends the other afternoon. They were drawing huge ice cream cones on the sidewalk. Apparently it was some kind of contest. There was a dispute over who would get to judge the ice cream cone drawing contest: both Paulina and Audrey claimed the position. Of course, there could be only one judge; it was not a joint position. So Clara suggested they put it to a vote.

 “Raise your hand if you want Paulina to be the judge,” she said.

 Three hands went up.

 “Raise your hand if you want Audrey to be the judge.”

 Only one hand goes up this time. There’s a pause while everyone considers the implications.

 “I’m going inside my house,” Audrey declares. “I’m not coming out anymore.”

 Audrey strides away and there’s another pause as the remaining girls watch her go. Then Lola and Clara go back to their coloring and Paulina goes back to munching her mango chunks with a satisfied air.
